a few things to note...

...about our trip to kelsey creek park today.

1. this was the first time we've done an activity like this where adalaide was able to get out of the stroller and walk. i wish i'd had my video camera, because she was so proud of herself and just kept squealing.   

2. two boys were being really nasty to finley at the playground. i kept waiting for one of their oblivious dads to say something, and just when i was about to intervene i heard finley say, "don't talk to me like that. it's mean!" i was so proud of her for standing up for herself, especially knowing how shy she is around new people.

3. someone thought i was a nanny. again. i'm sure in twenty years looking young will be a compliment, but i'm ready to stop looking sixteen. maybe i need some new clothes? more makeup? hmmm.

4. on the way home we chatted about the boys at the park who were unkind. finley asked, "why can't jesus come down from the sky and talk to those boys?" moments like that melt my heart.
